records of any kind relating to discussions with any other agencies. the references to the san jose city attorney's office are dated 9 months after that. but i think what is really important is that there is a, i think, a reference in an e-mail that it was mr. st craw who spoke to the city attorney about taking these cases. so what we don't know is how this magically happened, nine months later. there are also no e-mails or other written communications of any kind internally within the staff or with any of the commissioners with one exception which i will give you in a moment. so there is no way to track how this all came about. >> it is obvious that none of you were directly involved in the decision, which considering that it involved your... it had to be completely transparent and it had to be one that everybody would accept. i did find an e-mail from the chairman. it surprised me. it said, it went to mr. san croy. read shaw's complaints is there not any reason that we can't release san jose's analysis about why st san croy's allegations fall. i don't know much about ethics but i know

i am lisa herrick and i was asked to review the referal from the sunshine task force, sunshine ordinance task force and i agree with mr. gibner that i am not sure that there is a legal authority under the procedures that your commission has in reviewing these referals from the sunshine ordinance task force to refer that to another adjudicatory body completely. it is one thing to have a staff person to review in place of ethics commission staff and you know, conform the analysis, based on proceedings before the task force. i think that it is another to send the ultimate decision to another body. >> it is actually being transcribed. on the screen. >> miss herrick, thank you for your time and i have a couple of questions about your response. does that mean... are you aware of whether the san jose ethics commission has ever handled either on an advisorry basis or otherwise complaint referal from the different jurisdictional agencies? >> i have staffed the san jose election commission from 2008 and we have not ever accepted any such referals. >> has the elections commission made any referals themselves for matters to be handled by a agency outside of san jose? >> the election commission procedures and i think that our ethics ordinance do have some provisions for making referals. but that is generally in the nature of the district attorney office or their political practice commission. it would be something consistent with the jurisdiction of the selection commission but might possibly be ... there may be some criminal activity or some additional allegations that related to some violations of political format. not to another agency like the san francisco ethics commission or the oakland ethics commission. >> okay. thank you. very much. >> and any other questions for miss herrick on this matter? >> no. i don't have any. >> commissioner studley, you had raised this as a potential issue, do you... how would you recommend that we proceed? >> well, i will make a suggestion... i mean i am... i do find it meaningful that the city attorney reminds us that we have no legal conflict either individually or collectively. i have no obligation to the executive director, the executive director obligation is to the commission as a group and to the city and county, not personal. i can understand why we don't have staff to investigate their supervisor, that makes complete sense. so in trying to... i just want you to create a window where we didn't just rush to do something that thoughtful people were flagging for. but as we were trying to construct it, as a question of legal conflict and of our confidence to do it and our responsibility to do it, which is the other part mr. gibner raised. there is the past practice, the past example involving the deputy director, where we did seek counsel from others so that it would not be a staff colleague doing the investigation, but this body handled it. and i quite honestly can't remember if i was on at that time, and if so, whether we analyzed this, i came on in 07, probably not in time for that item. and i think that it is fair for people to put us through... to ask us whether we have both an obligation and the capacity, legally to do it and to ask whether there is a conflict. but i'm actually feeling less room now to do something else. the advisory opinion, or some other options, we could listen on the merits and make a judgment at that time whether we want to decide, pause, or refer, or seek referal or seek advisorry opinions. given that we have miss herrick and mr. shaw here, one possibility would be that we want to proceed and there may be complicated issues that we will want to know on the merits as well. i am not sharp and final, but i am actually what i am hearing is making me feel that we may have to do it, and there is... and less reason that we can't do it in terms of the direct, you no, do we have a conflict? we ask, you know, with regard to the city officials all of the time, who where the situation is sensitive and we are all working for the city, and we have those kinds of concerns. i haven't heard anything that said why we in particular would be unable to deal on the merits related to a member of the staff. >> commissioner liu do you have any thoughts on this? >> well, i think that was a really helpful discussion, helpful from the city attorney's office to get the guidance we did. because i came in thinking, you know, if there is a way to transfer it to another adjudicatory body that might help with the perception issues, but if there is no mechanism of doing that and to be reminded that it is our ultimate responsibility as the san francisco ethics commission to adjudicate complaints before us, i don't really see, like commissioner studley was saying, any room to do otherwise and then the question of whether we try to seek an advisory opinion from another body is, you know, could be problematic in the sense that is it basically the same as the mechanism that we have laid out here? which is it is investigated by a different body. and you know, we are going to take that, those... that opinion and decide what we want to do with it. so, and seeing less room to transfer the entire complaint to an entirely different body. >> i share that view. i mean that it is an imperfect system. obviously if you are adjudicating something that related to the executive director of the entity, there will be some perceptions of bias. and i think that is... i think that is clear that there is going to be some perception. the law does provide, though, that even some perception of bias is permissible in a situation like this where you have no legal conflict and we really don't have other options that would allow us to have somebody else adjudicate it. >> may i complaint on that point? >> you will have that opportunity, mr., shaw. so, i am not sure that we have a choice. it doesn't sound like we have a choice. and i, i don't think that an advisory opinion will be particularly helpful if we have to readjudicate it. >> i agree. >> i am not sure that this is, where they have to make determinations related to the executive directors that they hire and work with and conduct business together, that they investigate harassment complaints, whistle blower complaints they seek outside of the council to do that if they are well-organized. but they handle those because it is their job to do so. and i... so i raised it because we do want to be careful and thorough. but i think at this point it might make sense to proceed with the hearing from the attorney and mr. shaw and public comment and then decide at that point. there is no obligation for us to act tonight and see if we are prepared to do so if there is any part of this that we can't to explore further. >> i do have a question for you, commissioner studley, i think that is a fine way to proceed. and i would agree that we should move to the merits. >> mr. gibner, i have a question for you that e-mail that mr. grossman identified. mr. grossman, do you have it? >> he started to show it to me. >> okay. in form and in substance, i think that the e-mail said something like, st croix could we disclose the analysis. do you have it? and you have read it into the record, i just want mr. gibner to have it. >> thank you, mr. grossman. >> the e-mail, obviously reflects my view on miss herrick's analysis, i do think that it was excellent and certainly i had not received or read mr. shaw's response, but it did experience a opinion as to what i thought would happen with the complaint and it was directed to mr. st. croix. he is clearly the person that i typically deal with when trying to figure out procedural matters and what should be disclosed and what should be in the packet and what shouldn't. so i followed my regular procedure in sharing that with him. does that create a conflict that should lead me to recould yous myself from this matter? >> no it does not create a legal conflict or a disqualifying conflict that would require you to recuse yourself. >> it indicates that you reviewed her analysis and indicates your views of that analysis and my reading of it, you were asking mr. saint croix whether it should be made public and nothing in the e-mail indicates that you are bias in any way that would prevent you from participating in this decision. >> do any of my fellow commissioners have a... >> please? >> issue a question of my involvement in adjudicating this matter? >> i do not. because i think that as mr. gibner said it reflects, sort of the after the fact, after you have reviewed the analysis, and how you felt about it, that it did not show to be any bias going into reviewing this matter. well, if i remember the words correctly, and i wrote them down at the time, the question about whether we whether to release the memo, which stands for the proposition that it falls, not that you had made your final determination at that point. >> so, i don't think that you were describing or planning a result simply describing a memo. >> what do you think... >> mr. grossman, please, sit down. >> i did not... i have not made a final decision, obviously given that the matter had not been adjudicated. but clearly i did believe that miss herrick's analysis was right. i will say that on the record. i mean, when i read it, i evaluated, looked up the law and looked at what she said and i thought it was right. now saying that right now, again, that was before i got mr. shaw's response. but, i personally don't feel like there is... that i am... that that disqualifies me from adjudicating this matter, given what the city attorney has said, and in light of the response from my fellow commissioners, i am prepared to continue on. but. >> i do... >> mr. shaw you will get your chance. i am telling you, you will. >> commissioner studley, if that changes your view as to whether i should be adjudicated then i would listen very carefully for your opinion. >> all that i can say that in any given moment, i know, my own consideration of a matter, whether it is a policy matter or a legal determination, i read a piece, and i have a view of the piece and i read the other piece from the other side and i read the opposition and the reply brief and i read the memo in support and i read my ballot initiative and i think that sounds compelling until i read the other piece and i say i didn't think about that, yet, now i need to rethink it. so, i think the question is, any commissioner's open mind as to the total set of legal presentation argument and public comment that comes before us and that our obligation is to take that all in to account not that one piece of the evidence led us to think one way about an issue or, you know, i think that e-mail is again, it is something that i am glad that you opened, and i appreciate and i respect your doing that, because i think that it is useful to have said what it stands for. but i think that the legal advice is right. as long as for any of us, we feel that we have an open mind on the merits of an issue that is before us. people can judge from the conversation and the analysis and the decision that we make. >> mr. shaw? we... i will give you a chance to talk now on the... whether we should handle the matter issue, which is the preliminary matter and also the merits. if you would like to so address. >> thank you, because the my advice of how you perceive from mr. chat field is that i would only have public comment not any kind of presentation. >> and to that extend, the fact that you are rushing this thing through before adopting the final guidelines for referals of this sunshine cases should be waiting until you hammer out that process. instead of catching me the tail end of a old process that you don't like and you have not finished the other process. but i find it interesting that gibner said that he was not consulted before this was shipped off to miss herrick in san jose. apparently the commission members themselves did not know that. it sounds to me, particularly from the phone call that i had with miss herrick that she had a phone conversation with mr. saint croix, i find all of this beyond the pail. mr. gibner says, at there has not been a past practice of shipping things off. the case against maibl went to oakland and oakland developed a final recommendation after conducting an analysis and send it back and you did rubber stamp that. you have a past precedent of shipping case to another jurisdiction despite mr. gibner's off-the-cuff opinion which he did not site you any opinion number or the memo from the actual city attorney. so i think from my point of view, it sounds like mr. gibner is winging it and that is he offering you his personal opinion not a legal opinion. and certainly not a legal opinion as issued by the city attorney. so i remain concerned on the decision of whether you should be hearing this case and i'm not really quite ready to jump into the merits without, you know, some kind of reconsideration. it stinks to high heaven whether you can see the perception or not, that there is a perception of a conflict of interest in this case. you should not be hearing it. and i should not have found out from miss herrick that i had a conversation with mr. st. croix. nor i did know that miss herrick was being dragged into this, simply to give you a recommendation. i thought that i would be headed towards the san jose ethics commission. but it appears they don't have one. and i am very disturbed that it went to an ethics commission it should have been referred to a jurisdiction that has a ethics commission, it should have went to oakland. i can't sit here and say that every election's commissioner has been trained, even remotely, in ethics. i am not sure that you are required to be trained in ethics before you are appointed for that matter. you may all have law degrees or some of you may not. but i don't know that having election staff review an ethics case, is really where you want to take this. as for, merit, in my september 19th, memo, you know, the one that you read after you, concluded that she was correct? and i note in my memo that miss herrick in the ethics commission itself, keeps stumbling over section c3.699-13. you lost that case, mr. grossman brought against you, because it was clear that 699-13 only applies to ethics laws, not the public records access laws. my complaint involves that the sunshine task force and and the public records access issues, not ethics laws so starting with mr. croix who submitted documents early on in the process and the fourth page set of citations that the city controller issued all focused quite heavily on 699-13. with you all forgetting that citation doesn't apply to public access records law. and all along the defense in stalling production of the records that i have asked for, has hindged on the wrong application of ethics laws to a public records case. it has been noted that a narrow construction of 699-13 compels, the conclusion that it applies only to ethics laws. >> mr. shaw, can i ask you a question about that? >> i may defer my answer to mr. grossman who is the expert on this, if you don't mind, because unlike you, sir, i am not a lawyer. >> okay. my question is, i am not sure that i quite understand, it seems like apple and oranges. i mean, my understanding... let me ask my question and you can answer the best that you can. my understanding is that 699.13 refers to a number of areas that the ethics commission has the authority to investigate such as campaign finance, lobbying, conflicts of interest and governmental ethics. doesn't this investigation relate to the commission's authority to investigate governmental ethics violations? >> my complaint, alleged that the records that i sought between ethics and the city controller on the laguna patient gift fund were being withheld. >> doesn't the laguna honda matter. why isn't that a investigation relating to governmental ethics? >> because it was an investigation about... i would frame it more that it was elder financial abuse and not ethics. it was a misappropriation of funds. it was not per se, about ethics. funds were misappropriated from a restricted use fund and was spent by staff and when the city controller finally was pushed into conducting an audit, $350,000 of that misappropriated funds was restored to patient use. it was more about financial issues, not about ethical issues. >> let me ask mr. shaw a question? >> sure. >> isn't part of your point that it doesn't matter why you wanted them? that it is simply a public records request and you don't have to tie it to elder financial abuse or... >> that is right. >> you could not look and see what letterhead they used. >> miss studley you are right. when you file a sunshine complaint you don't have to specify, is it public access? is it ethics clause, you don't have to say. >> curiosity, or did you think that something was going wrong, right? you don't have to tie it. >> the sunshine ordinance quite clearly states that the record request do not have to specify why they are asking for records, you are right. >> and i understand that, as well. i guess, i thought that your argument is that c3.699-13 does not apply because this is not a conflict of interest situation. >> it is not a conflict. i have not alleged a conflict of interest issue or an ethics issue in my initial 30-page sunshine complaint. believe me that 30 pages was because i developed a table and went through the four pages of citations that i was first given by the city controller's office and then, as i started objecting to those particular citations they started out... they started rolling out new citation and changing the old citations. but i did not start out on an ethics complaint on this. it was strictly about access to public records and if the city controllers audit is finished and assuming that the ethics commissions investigation of the patient gift fund is complete, those investigations are complete, and the records have to be released because the investigation is over. >> any other questions for mr. shaw? >> were there any other subnative points that you want to make, mr. shaw? >> again, 699-13, indicating that investigative records have to be kept confidential applies only to ethics laws, not public records access laws. >> miss herrick for her part, all be ignores campaign and government code 4.105 d. states that the ethics commiting shall investigate complaints under the section that alleged violations of local campaign finance lobbies and financial interest and government ethics laws, which commissioner hur pointed out. however, section 4.105 a, states. any person can file a complaint with the ethics commission alleging that a city officer or employee has engaged in improper activity by, again, violating campaign finance lobbying, conflicts of interest, or government

switchbacks she has been subject to three of them even though she's not a regular muni rider. these are descriptions of her experiences. in early april i boarded -- by the way her name is gene and i will be reading hers. at some point the driver announced something on the pa system. the sound had static and he had an accent and i couldn't understand what he said and the other riders didn't show great concern. when he began announcing again i asked a later near me and she wasn't sure but maybe getting off on 36th avenue. i road to 26th avenue where my car was and stopped at 36th avenue and had all the passengers, 25 -- not an age but number, get off and stand in the rain to wait for another car whichn 't in sight. another time i recall being involved in a switch back i boarded a train at at&t park when the giants were home and playing. hey giants. i got off at the embarcadero station to wait for out bound in bound train. when i looked at the schedule board it said the next one would be 45 minutes. there were several people waiting and we continued to wait as 2m and 2k cars and j and t cars went by. i realized those with me were also waiting for n car. i called three one one which is a wonderful efficient customer service related system. i was given someone i was told taking calls related to muni. he said he knew nothing about a delay in n cars had he had not been informed or received calls about any delay. as he was checking in and an inbound n car went past me towards the ballpark and the cal train. i told that to the three one one operator and by the time it came back to the embarcadero station after being by the ballpark and the people waiting patiently except for me at the embarcadero station would do well to get on the train much less get a seat. he was a pol gettic and he assured me he noted my call. within five minutes an out bound train came in to the embarcadero station empty. the schedule indicated it would be more than 30 minutes to the next out bound train and by the time this train got to powell street station it was full and more people each stop after. since the three one one operator knew nothing about a problem and meant all those people didn't call because they didn't expect to get any better service. number three, another more recent time i boarded in train at third avenue and the signage said it was only going to church street. i got on and the driver said in a clear voice on a clear pa system that the train would go only to church street. at every stop he informed the new passengers that boarded. i thought this is great. everything's working as it should. if they do a switch back. when we got to church street the train was full with many people standing and we were told to get off and go oat another means of transport. i was one of the last to get off and some people started getting on. i told them this train is not going to the embarcadero. they replied "it is". they changed it. at this point more than half of the passengers were gone and the train left embarcadero with half of the passengers and most had gone on to seek other means to the embarcadero or the ballpark. when i ask people about switchbacks they all know and say it's a common occurrence. when muni says they rarely use switch back it's incredulous. they feel it's a common experience in their muni experience as it is mine. now we will switch back to me. what i want to say one of the main findings in the report is the fact that out of all the transit systems we interviewed only one used switchbacks as muni does to -- >> can i interrupt you and ask you about that? >> yes. >> perhaps i missed it, but can you talk a little bit about the other jurisdictions that you spoke with? >> you know what we're going to have in jack's report -- he's going to talk about how we chose the other jurisdictions. >> great. >> and jack and i interviewed them together and some of the other jurors joined in on the interviews but our selection was based on the controller's report that compared systems and we selected the list from the controller and contacted those systems. we were also told that all of the systems in europe use switchbacks as a tool, so we took advantage of a vacation to contact three systems in paris, and speak to representative who knew about those three systems. we then confirmd that interview in a phone call with some emails. >> great. >> so let's have jack come up because he can talk to you about the story of our interviews, why we conducted them and some of the information we got from those interviews. >> thank you. and as sharon mentioned when we do our interviews we have two people present and make records of them, so in doing so to continue we spent ten months of our subsequent investigations investigating the muni. during this time muni management continued to insist that using switchbacks as a traffic smoothing tool was good for the majority passengers, yet digging deeper the civil grand jury discovered in fact that the muni had no evidence one way or another about the use or abuse of switchbacks. this was because as many managers repeatedly told us switch backs are commonly and frequently used in other transportation systems around the world. according to one manager" they're part of transportation 101 and a basic tool for traffic". did they spend up buss and trains? did they make service more reliable? as it was clear muni was not interested in our investigation we asked muni officials for names of the other systems that use switchbacks for other emergency situations. they respond they couldn't name such systems and they didn't need to because they knew for a fact "all other systems use switch backs in this way". after hearing the same answer for the ten months of our investigation we were taken aback in august, 2012, just a few months ago, to read in the newspaper that muni reported that they interviewed five other systems and found that they all used switchbacks to smooth traffic. in september of 2011 we decided if muni would not provide us with other transit agencies to speak to we would have to find them ourselves. fortunately the san francisco controller did a study and comparing muni to five other systems these cities included boston, seattle, new york, oakland and san jose or santa clara mta. they all had higher scores than muni. muni was on the bottom. we included bart. since they said other systems did it we decided to look at the systems in paris france. it took months to identify the right officials and in this case either the head of operations or the systems schedulinger all but one which was new york agreed to an extensive interview by two of us and per the rules we were not identified. nevertheless of the interviews as described in the report were significant. all transit systems it became clear had multiple systems that were similar and had challenges and all needed to deal with complex traffic, scheduling, and terrain problems uniquely their own, and yet as we had known the san francisco controller's survey had shown all had higher reliability and rider seaferz than muni and we determined that all systems use switchbacks they only did so in cases of equipment break down or emergencies except for one. one system which happened to be the santa clara mta does use switch backs and interestingly enough their head is the former employee of muni, michael burns, who was a former employee and went to work for them. as you supervisors may remember he was the one that took bonuses for all sorts of things he really wasn't able to do for muni and increasing time and got these bonuses. what also struck us was the amazement of the operation officers if they employed switchbacks? what we heard over and over again are the comments that swism backs were an insult to riders. they also pointed out that switchbacks couldn't speed up traffic because of the time boarding and deboarding. what struck home was the attitude of the managers in their own system. in virtually all cases they took responsibility for ensuring the responsibility of the system and work improve their services and rider surveys and constantly adjusting their schedules. i under line that. constantly adjusting their schedules. virtually everyone told us schedules was the most effective tool and many felt the additional time to load and unload vehicles slowed service. the managers that we interviewed also volunteered that the daily actions and programs taken guaranteed that service was reliable and all were under surkaled budgets and these solutions need to be cost effective. we were impressed with the cado attitude of management and staff and make sure that needs were met and some ininstituted apps and allows passages to see where vehicles were at all times and other coordinated lights to speed up service. we came away convinced if muni instituted a portion of those suggestions there could be increase in the speed of the system and rider satisfaction as well as lower cost. coming away from the interviews we were eegtory show our findings with muni to see how many suggestions would be tried. unfortunately when jurors attempted to engage with muni as per our charter responsibility we were met with stale rhetoric and managers had speeches and suggested the problems were impossible to fix and not in the term of our time. next we were allowed to negotiate with officials and ask a meeting with the scheduling muni manager. we were told that position was currently empty. adding insult to injury it wasn't midpoint in the investigation that we came across a statement from them and tep and transit effective project and shared with us and compleated in 2008 and list of solutions similar to those proposed by transportation consultants with whom we spoke. the muni managers we finally did speak with shared the fact that the 2008tep plan has been halted to budgetary concerns and was now only being partially implemented. in our report we acknowledge the resurrection of 2008tep as a step forward from muni and encouraged the expansion of it to speed up muni and ways to avoid switchbacks. in summary the 2011-2012 grand jury conducted a survey of other systems and four of which had higher rider satisfaction ratings than muni. we found that the use of switchbacks was not a commonly used practice of all systems and rejected by the managers who felt they're an sult to passengers and rather the other systems use variety and easy and low cost practices to ensure rider satisfaction. many are similar to those identified in muni's 2008 effectiveness transit project. unfortunately although it has been resurrected it hasn't been updated and recommendations are only being implemented selectively. thank you. >> thank you. just a quick question and thank you for giving the report and no wonder i recognize you in the hall there. how many jurisdictions did you talk to? >> well, we emailed and talked to people in paris because they did comment on our initial go around that everybody in the world uses switch backs and we can emphatically and categorically tell you it's not a smoothing tool for their systems in france. we talked to the people in seattle and boston and the san jose and santa clara area. am i leaving any out? >> [inaudible] >> and we also talked to bart. >> [inaudible] >> boston, seattle, yes. new york didn't speak to us. san jose, santa clara, yes. >> [inaudible] >> oakland is the ac. yes. the transit system, the alameda county system and they said emphatically we believe it's an insult to use the switchbacks other than for emergencies and break downs. >> got it. in each of the jurisdictions none of them use switchbacks for traffic smoothing. >> correct. except the one in san jose santa clara who got one of our ex-operation managers, a mr. burns. >> got it. all right. thank you very much. >> thanks jack. we have another jack, jack toumy and another grand jury member and summarizing the findings. he will go over our recommendations and again with the responses of the sfmta and the mayor. since the mayor's responses were identical to muni they will be discussed simultaneously. jack. >> hello there. f1, switchbacks violate the spirit of the city charter. the muni said that customers are concerned with on time performance and liability. switchbacks contract to these goals. we. >> >> answer that this response does not really address the findings. the finding was about the spirit of the city charter. page three of the report lists the six goals for muni in proposition e from 1999. muni makes unsubstageiated statement that switchbacks increase the reliability of the system. unfortunately they have presented no evidence whatsoever this is true or riders are not negatively impacted from switchbacks. f2, little interest in finding alternatives to switchbacks. muni says our infrastructure limits us in available techniques. this is followed by a list of techniques and move scheduled trains up and "all alternatives have impacts on first passengers". the response the able techniques we listed in our report have been used by other systems. they do not have a negative impact on service reliability because they rely on proactive best practices and good plans in order to speed service. dead heading and moving up the schedule are techniques similar to switchbacks in that they're symptomatic and arbitrary and disrupting to passengers and without increasing the speed and the reliability of the system. f3, no evidence that switchbacks will alleviate delay and service. muni relies there is overall ample evidence to this service. our response "if you be so kind please show us -- the mayor and the board of supervisors, whatever evidence you have". f4, muni officials show calious disregard to the welfare of riders. muni responds "we don't order switch back unless one is meritd and reduce the impact on customers" and there is response to f1 about on time performance and reliability, and then they site there were only 82 switch backs that occurred in july of 2012 and this is down from the 200 to 400 which they say are quoted in the grand jury report. they state that switch backs are heavily concentrated in off beat times and towards the end of a route. 95% occur when another train is less than five minutes behind. the jury answers. the jury obtained the numbers about switch backs from muni officials. we didn't make them up. we were not given information about the concentration of switchbacks and there are no third party observations to confirm muni's belief that riders are not negatively impacted. we believe that rider surveys are needed in order to verify whether the switch backs and other disruptive practices impact passengers. f5 and f6 are both about the comparison to other cities, and muni said "all operators cited in the report operate exclusively on private right-of-ways. muni does not. muni lists five systems that use switch backs in regular transportation" and they said that bart and boston mta use switch backs in the same way and f.d six improvements and alleviate switchbacks with this. the jury responds, "the jury asked muni officials several times to provide a list with transit operators to verify the assertion that it's the industry standard. muni kept repeating a generalization and gave up with a list of the controller and of the five other transit operators. the jury assumes that the controller did not cherry pick these five cities and or transit operations. the jury added bart and the paris systems since muni alleged the practice was common in europe. of all the city systems the jury interviewed only santa clara valley transit association supported muni. at the end of the term muni received the report two days before it went public. in those two days apparently muni came up with a list of five like minded transit systems. the jury asks how many other systems did you contact during those two days? did you do some cherry picking? we were also like to know how these unreported systems f any, responded to the question? as far as bart and boston mbta are reviewed they stand by their results. muni officials talk out of both of their mouth. on one side they talk about switchbacks as a common transit system and a procedure that could rise to the procedure of best practice. the other side talks about their effort to reduce the switch backs and alleviate their effect on the public. why this second side? because in reality they're close to a worse practice. muni -- okay. f7. muni fails to fully implement technological improvements. muni says -- they give us a list -- muni gave us a list of improvements that are under way. they say these will reduce the need for switchbacks. the jury answers, "the jury appreciates the efforts being made. we are glad some of these are partially accomplished and others coming in the future. many systems we interviewed had these technologys in place. we would like muni to have a sense of urgency about the improvements and concerned about the term "under way" and completion dates that are years away" . on f8 which concerns a new control center lacking adequate operating personnel and f9 muni has failed to conduct and publish rider survey and muni agreed with both of these findings. as far as the recommendations, the first recommendation is to eliminate switchbacks except when unavoidable. muni disagrees with the recommendation reasserting that switch backs are valid and necessary given the operating environment. they have worked on reducing the switchbacks and keeping the public informed and would further denigate service and safety. the jury answers, "that's what we're getting at that muni think it is switch backs are a normal way of business". other transportation systems were aghast, appalled that a transit system could inconvenience their customers so cavalierly and we want them to have the feeling that we are doing a good job" when they deem them unavoidable. recommendation two, contact and learn from paris not resorting to switchbacks regularly. muni agrees there is room for improvement and they will reach out to their peers to study their standard operating procedures but note the claim that others are using procedures similar to muni. the jury answers "the jury approves part of the response about contacting peers. we hope that you contact those systems that were on our list. these systems are seen by the controller as being similar to muni, and have higher reliability and passenger ratings than muni. if muni is going to strife for improvement and go for systems that do not justify a failed mentality. audit muni funds. the audit has control of the funds and working on tep. as the preferred avenue for service. the jury appreciates muni's response. next is train staff for controlled center. muni says staffing is under way for fiscal year 2013 to be completed by the end of the fiscal year and new communications expected in 2015. the jury expects muni's response and the final recommendation is monthly surveys. muni disagrees with the monthly part. they say that are conducting quarterly surveys and will conduct annual survey and perform on board passenger survey in early 2013. the results will be on the muni website. the jury agrees that quarterly surveys would be sufficient and applauds the commitment of muni. we urge miewn tow include questions about switch backs and other service disruptions to address whether muni is in chapt charter requirements with a reliable and transportation system. >> thank you very much. >> thank you. that's the end our report we urge you to accept our findings and recommendations. thank you very much. >> thank you very much for your time and effort on this. i appreciate it. i would ask mta if there a member -- i see janet here and come forward to talk to the report and if you want to get as specific as you want that's fine as well. >> thank you mr. chairman, preside

reporter len ramirez on what it could mina very close race. >> reporter: i've covered san jose politics for a lot of years but have never seen city council races quite like this. it's all about pension reform and the forces for and against it. it has turned civil campaigns into bitter battles. >> fiscal responsibility is definitely needed in city hall. >> reporter: johnnie and robert bronstein both have solid reasons for getting into san jose politics. >> crime in san jose is at its highest rate in 10 years so we need to fully staff the police department. >> reporter: but in these the final days of a tight race for the city council seat in district 10, the campaign has taken a nasty turn. >> i think some of these pieces are racist and i don't know any other way to explain it. >> reporter: khamis say this is a thinly veiled attack on his palestinian heritage around a darkened image of him it says arab-american leaders mobilize their constituents, too extreme. >> arab extremists is on the news every day trying to paint me an an extremist and i think that's despicable. >> we didn't have co

we are tied. watch how notre dame tied it against pitt. theo riddick at the back of the end zone and they tie it and need a two-point conversion and golston with the conversion. we are tied in south bend. >> sean: magical season about to continue for notre dame. le'veon bellowers the boom and he gets five. goes out of bounds. they will wind the clock. forward progress had been stopped. alonzo whaley made the tackle. five-yard gain. under three minutes to go. michigan state leading by three after they held nebraska on fourth down and nine. >> chris: bo pelini takes a time-out. >> sean: 172 yards rushing now. i think bo pelini, you can read his lips, wasn't that out of bounds? you really can't allow a first down here, they will really be up against it. here is the latest bcs standings. they will change tomorrow night. alabama with a big matchup tonight at lsu. tigers have the longest home winning streak in the country, 22 in a row. k-state in action tonight on abc at 8:00 against oklahoma state. oklahoma state has won the last three in that rivalry. tomorrow night on espn and espnu the new bcs poll will be unveiled. who will rise and fall? tomorrow night at 8:30 eastern on espn and continues on espnu at 9:00. >> chris: i'm going to go with a little bit of upset pick. i think usc is going to get oregon tonight. i don't know why. >> sean: put a friendly wager on that if you want. >> chris: nothing friendly about that wager. >> sean: no, there is not. second and five. they added some time back onto the clock. shovel back to bell. first down! he stayed inbounds so as soon as they move the chains they will wind the clock again. >> chris: another great call for dan roushar, the defensive coordinator. really outstanding. just misdirection play and nebraska defense going one way and le'veon bell in the open field and smarts to get down inbounds. >> sean: 229 rushing yards for michigan state who was averaging only 131 per game and last in the big ten entering today. rush defense all about a problem for nebraska. they are 82nd in the country in rush defense. ninth in the big ten. bell up-ended by p.j. smith. time-out called by nebraska leaving the huskers with one with 2:21 left. tonight on abc's saturday into the football, national championship hopes on line in the big 12 for k-state. the wildcats host number 24 oklahoma state. 8:00 eastern time and 5:00 pacific. another series with a knack for having close games. >> chris: i just think kansas state with collin klein, everything going for them and number two and no longer flying under the radar. do you feel an upset there? >> sean: i do. >> chris: that is the one you feel the upset? i kind of feel it too. time of the year nobody is talking about whether lsu can knock off alabama down there. i'll go with that one too! i got to get one of them right! >> sean: bid on one, everyone says, that spielman said that. second and seven. bell. nebraska will use their last time-out, you would think. for the moment, they are not. they will after this play, almost certainly. rather than punt them down and try to stop them and make them punt deep in their own territory by going for it, they have made the field position really tough for yourself. if you get it back if you're nebraska because they will have no time-outs left and much of the field to cover but they only need a field goal to tie it but they need the ball back first. huge play. third and six. blitz. bell. trying to break tackles! powering but he didn't get there! now mark dantonio with a decision to make on fourth down and two. dameyune stafford got him down. looked like a no gain play but bell showed his power, made it close enough. what do you think mark dantonio would do here given his conservative nature? i imagine he would punt because if you go for it here and you get stopped, now it's only about 30 yards for nebraska to get a game tying field goal. >> chris: you have to punt the football. what is the best part of your team? your defense. let the defense win the game for you and taylor martinez has thrown three picks and one thing you don't want to do is give anything over the top and they are pretty well coached and pretty solid in the back end. >> sean: nebraska leading the legends division of the big ten, tied with one loss with michigan. michigan won today to go to 4-1. they won at nebraska without denard robinson who was injured with an arm injury and did not play. nebraska was in control of its own destiny but, obviously, if they lose today, that is no longer the case and it also keeps michigan state alive. they have the punt team out there. nebraska has to make sure it stays onside. low snap. it bounced back there. it goes into the end zone. it will come out to the 20. it's been a season of nail-biters. close wins and close losses. braxton miller hit devin smith at ohio state for 63 yards to put the buckeyes up in the third quarter. they held on. giving urban meyer the win. iowa, second overtime. the interception seals three-point iowa win here. then down the road the big house. givens with a field goal to give michigan a two-point win in that rivalry game. spartans bounce back to win the next week. they are 6-0 after the michigan game. mark dantonio has done a great job getting his team focused win or lose after that rivalry game. they need a field goal. they have a receiver wide open! enunwa! a big chunk on first down. 22 yards out to the 42! martinez is on target. he had thrown for only 95 yards for the game before this one. >> chris: i have no idea what darqueze dennard is doing. understand the situation in the ball. you cannot let a receiver run free down the field! >> sean: nebraska team that is used to working at a high tempo. martinez. bad decision. got nothing. the clock will run. he got banged down by max bullough. the clock will be under a minute before they snap it again without any time-outs left. >> chris: throw it away to stop the clock and try to make a play with his legs. got to make one with your brain. throw it away conditio. >> sean: martinez throws. a little bit high but seemed to be catchable and would have taken a great effort by the senior. here's maher who kicked a 54-yarder early at ucla. the longest for a nebraska kicker away from lincoln. >> chris: number 80, kenny bell is at the bottom of your screen and working one-on-one with a tough johnny adams. >> sean: he has one catch in the second half. five for the game. spartan defense backs up. martinez throws on the run. ball nowhere near a cornhusker. it comes down to this play. fourth and ten. if nebraska does not convert, it's ball game over. and lead gone in their division for the cornhuskers. they are 1 out of 2 on fourth down in this game. >> chris: here is where pat narduzzi last time pressured taylor martinez, forcing him to make a quick throw and see what they decide to do as michigan state will take a time-out. >> sean: first for the spartans and still have two. they hope they don't need them. >> chris: i think that is the play for pat narduzzi. still play safe and force your back end. they force taylor martinez to make a quick decision and to such good tacklers in the back end and force a hot throw and make the play and ball game. >> sean: pat narduzzi you hear his name as a head coaching candidate. why wouldn't he be? they have been terrific here on defense for several years. they are one defense stop away here from being bowl eligible for a school record sixth year in a row. been a disappointing season but max bullough said with the win last week they think will turn it. we went down to the wire with wisconsin and we did. will they win another? >> chris: drop eight in coverage. >> sean: there is a entering down. martinez has kyler reed inside the 30 and down inside the 20 yard line! they are going to give him -- where are they going to mark it? looks like they will spot it at the 20. hicks ran it out. a flag down but it looked like gholston was offside for michigan state. if it stands it's 38 yards and at the very least they are in range for a game tying field goal. >> referee: offsides, defense. number 2. that penalty is declined. the play results first down. out of bounds at the start of the snap. >> chris: you see william golston jumped here. twice in third downs they dropped eight and twice in third downs when they dropped eight and i suggest maybe come with the pressure package which they have had success with. a tough call to make. >> sean: longest completion to kyler reed. short of the first down marker. they have to be alert to get up or run the field goal team on quickly. martinez throws short. last thing, obviously, that he wants to do is make another critical mistake in the red zone. he had a big interception that looked like they were about to score earlier in this half. earlier in this quarter. maher trying to stay warm with the temperature now in the mid-30s. >> chris: you see michigan state very very cautious. only bringing three and protecting that back line of the end zone. >> sean: time-out michigan state again on defense. it might come down to the foot of brett maher, the senior veteran kicker. he missed a chip from earlier a 30-yarder. wide right. his only attempt of this game. he's had kind of an up and down year. we mentioned he was the big ten kicker and placekicker last year. just 10 out of 18 this year in field goals. well within his range. we said it would be about 37 yards from here. i guess the question is how risky do you get trying to score a touchdown and win it in regulation or do you guard mostly for the field goal? >> chris: i play mostly for the field goal because of the three interceptions thrown but the other thing i do maher missed from the hash. i make sure i get that ball positioned in the middle of the field. or wherever he wants it. >> sean: generally they have a spot they feel most comfortable. here comes elsworth on the rush. nearly got to martinez. the pass incomplete. low. intended for kyler reed. elsworth a former walk-on really become a factor as a pass rusher and very quick off the line. >> chris: absolutely. could not get to him. good pressure. kyler reed had isaiah lewis beat inside but because the ball was thrown a little bit early, taylor martinez was off balance and one-hopped it in to kyler. >> sean: they have to be careful now. it needs to go out of bounds or needs to be a first down because it's no opportunity to spike it if you're tackled shy of the markers. you have to run the field goal team on. third and ten. maerts throwing the fade and it is incomplete. flag down on dennard! who had coverage on kenny bell! >> chris: first of all, it's the right call. you're taking your shot into the end zone. nothing in the middle of the field. >> sean: they are showing a replay on the screen. mark dantonio, you can read his lips. it's not pass interference, how can you call take? >> referee: pass interference number 31. 15-yard penalty. automatic first down. >> chris: working one-on-one. oh, boy. i don't see an interference. i think that is outstanding coverage. he is looking and leaning. they are playing the football. both of them. very difficult call. game time situation. tough. >> sean: there have been some big calls in this game. 15 yards. first and goal. last time-out used by michigan state. they have used all three on defense here in the last minute of the game. nebraska folks weren't happy about that late hit out of bounds against daimion stafford. the michigan state possession down near the goal line. >> chris: everything is good right there. he is looking back for the ball and looking and leaning. to looks to me kenny bell has the arm hooked of dennard. dennard doesn't have his arm hooked. kenny bell is hooking his arm. >> sean: wow. >> chris: wow is right. >> sean: nine penalties against michigan fascinate for a hundred yards. both teams penalized nine times. maher getting loose but they hope they don't need him. first and goal but no time-outs. the ball is on the 5, chris. no way the running game is factor here. >> chris: you have to throw the ball into the end zone and fade again. you also have kyler reed in there working as a tight end. matchup with a safety or linebacker and lined up here as a tight end. might be the matchup you're looking for in this situation. >> sean: they come with a blitz. maer out of the back of the end zone, isaiah lewis had coverage. >> chris: they tried a double move on isaiah lewis. good discipline. keeping his eyes on the receiver and running with kyler reed the whole way. the matchup we thought they would go to and they went to it and well executed by isaiah s. s >> sean: will the spartans go for it? >> chris: you're playing man-to-man defense. a matchup i like here on this play. jamal turner in the slot. >> sean: no time-outs left for either team. second and goal. corner of the end zone. caught! touchdown! nebraska! jamal turner made the catch! >> chris: the matchup we liked. why? because he has all of the field to work with. taylor martinez is throwing to a spot. jamal turner focusing in and does a good job, the 1-2. absolutely, he got two or three of them down. >> sean: he had possession all the way through. first touchdown of the year for jamal turner. six seconds to go. it's been excruciating year for mark dantonio. this is the most excruciating. one play away, one fourth down stop away from victory. nebraska converted. and they got the controversial pass interference penalty and huskers are six seconds away from another come-from-behind win in double digits for the third time in big ten play this year. >> chris: here is why we circled it. man-to-man and all of this room to work with and working on mitchell white, one they like. mitchell white takes away the inside and jamal turner has all of that room to work with and taylor martinez a thing he has improved on is knocking to the open man and delivers a strike to turner who does a good job of securing the catch. >> sean: bo pelini made the decision to go for it on the previous possession fourth down and nine and didn't get it. they didn't get it. they go 80 yards in nine plays in 1:14 and they completed long fourth down pass to kyler reed. then the pass interference penalty that mark dantonio will never forget and put the ball at the 5. jamal turner, the catch, for the touchdown. the first touchdown of his nebraska career as a sophomore. you expect all kinds of laterals here. nick hill looking for help but going in the wrong direction. ball still alive. but not any longer. and nebraska retains control of its own defendant in the legends division of the big ten. the fans are booing the officials. another excruciating loss for dantonio and victory was in their grasp. here is quint kessenich with bo pelini. >> quint: coach, what happened in the last drive? what didn't happen in the last drive? a crazy game. proud of our kids. they fought hard. give a lot of credit to michigan state too. it was a heck of a football game. we made a lot of mistakes and somehow we outlasted and able to make a play there at the end to win it. >> quint: take me inside of your mind. on fourth down you don't get it and may not get the ball back. what was going on in your mind? >> well, you know, we were going to win the game, you know? and i thought it was the right thing to do to go for it and i figured we could stop them on defense and we had all of our time-outs so that changed my thinkinging a little bit. >> quint: how do you best characterize the play of taylor martinez? >> big-time player. you know? he played his butt off today. so did a lot of other guys. but 3 was big time today. >> quint: congratulations, coach. >> sean: he was enormous most of the game on the ground with two long touchdowns and hadn't done much passing prior to the last drive and had under a hundred yards throwing and he averages 223 a game but he had a couple of big completions on that game winning drive that will make the celebrating long into the night around lincoln, nebraska. 28-24 the final. be sure to tune in to abc tonight at 8:00 for more football. oklahoma state against kansas state ranked number two, tonight on abc. for chris speilman and quint kessenich and our abc crew, so long from sean mcdonough. now to the studios. >> thanks a lot. coming up prime time at 8:00 eastern time collin klein leads his team out to the field. he also leads all those who are in the running for the heisman trophy right now. kansas state the number two team in the nation. john saunders alongside jesse palmer. that is at 8:00 eastern time. it looked like perhaps kansas state might be solidifying their hold on that number two spot but the fighting irish of notre dame would not go easily against pitt. it looked for a while like they were done. pitt down 6-3 in the contest. ray graham who had a terrific day turns the corner here and goes outside. >> big runs in this game for ray graham. 55 yards, 48 yards. this one here showing you his speed and getting into the end zone. notre dame giving up explosive plays. i haven't seen that a lot this year. >> j.p.holtz. >> as in lou holtz perhaps? >> it looked like that way for pitt. first and goal. a wide receiver screen to t.j. jones. touchdown. >> set up by a controversial pass interference call on tight end tyler eifert. >> an interception by pitt so looks like they will ice the game. notre dame gets the ball back and golston finds riddick for the two-point conversion. golston takes it himself. >> he extends the play and making things happen with his legs. >> from 41 yards out, this is in the first overtime he knocks it through from 41 yards out. so pitt has scored first in overtime. they eke out a victory that is eked from the jaws of defeat. >> notre dame has been inefficient in this game. first time all year long the defense hasn't been there to save the game. inconsistent position from the quarterback position. golson taken out of the game and for tommy rees. the voters in the bcs poll want notre dame to be dominant week in and week out whether they are playing stanford or playing purdue or byu or today's pitt team at home. they haven't been that way and why they are number four in the human polls. >> this is not going to impress anyone so they need some help. from oklahoma state or some help from usc against oregon. oregon, marcus mayory owe take to thomas -- mariota to thompson for a touchdown. >> they march down the field and kick a field goal to answer. >> looked like they had a touchdown but it was called out of bounds. so they get a field goal. 7-3. coming up tonight lsu against alabama. third time the last year these two have met with about everything on the line. lsu, what dove to do to pull out an upset at home? >> i think the only chance to run the football efficiently. the start of the year the offensive line had injury issues up front and found the right combination a few weeks ago. last two games against south carolina and texas a&m. they have now run for 477 yards. they have to match alabama physicality at home. make life easy on zach mettenberger if they have any chance. >> when you talk about physicality people don't think kansas state but they should. >> they should on offense and defense. i think oklahoma state has a chance to win this game on the road. they have to do a great job running the football with joseph randle on offense and defensively have to stop collin klein and john hubert running the football. easier said than done. >> take one more peek. notre dame have added a field goal so it's now tied at 23-23 going into the second overtime. john hubert, 90 rushing yards per game. that's at 8:00 eastern time. we will see you then. >> not panic. i know there was anxiety about fuel. >> the storm has passed but the problems persist. new york's governor urges calm after panic at the pump. good evening, thanks for joining us, i'm ama daetz. power is now coming back on but two slowly for many withoutlights or heat. a bigger problem is now a shortage of fuel and the mayor says it could take days to fully resolve. reporter: the flood has become a drought. millions in the northeast are desperately seeking gasoline. >> waited on two lines today, and for two hours, and each one said there was no gas. >> trying to get some gas in my car. i'm getting out of the city. the city don't love me. >> 2/3 of the gas stations in the new york metro area are out of fuel and more than half the stations in new jersey and long eye leaned are shut down. more gasoline is on the way. >> eight million gallons have been delivered. 28 million gallons will be delivered over the next two days. reporter: abc news went on an exclusive ride as the coast guard helped clean up a fuel spill. sandy ripped containers off their bases, sending thousands of gallons of fuel into the water. meanwhile, millions are still without electricity. president obama was briefed on recovery efforts at fema headquarters. >> this continues to be my number one priority. there's nothing more important than getting his right. >> central park is dressed up with no place to go. the marathon was cancelled for the first time in history in deference to victims. >> people who are flooded out. >> we spent thousands of dollars to bring our family here, pay for hotel rooms, airline tickets. >> temperatures are dropping, and a nor nor'easter with the potential for strong wind and rains could be the in forecast next week. >> ama: right now gas rationing is in place in both new york and new jersey. new york is restricting gas to 10 gallons per customer, and new jersey drivers can fill up every other day depressing on if theirs license plate nix even or odd. a plan to vice-president free fuel at mobile emergency stations have been suspended. >>> east coast red cross blood donation centers are getting back up and running, other centers are welcoming donations to make up the need. here live with more. reporter: the bay area has sent money and dozens of volunteers to the east coast to help those victims of sandy, and bay area residents are literally giving of themselves in order to help those who are injured. the oakland red cross blood donation center is still busy almost a week after sandy devastated the east coast. people like karen of oakland are still motivated to donate after seeing the devastation of sandy. >> you can't be not motivated if you see anything on tv or see reports about what happened in new york, new jersey, all up and down the coast. reporter: steven bureaus decided while dough mating money helps the red crocks being a blood door nor is just at important. >> i have good blood, 0 negative blood so decided to donate. >> donations are 25% higher than they usually are this time of the year. sandy caused the closure of blood collection centers in the states due to power outages and flooding. they also need blood platelets. that what the bay area and national red cross sent the areas. >> they only have a shelf life of five days, so if you're not collecting platelets on the east coast for three or four or five days, they're inventory is going to run out. >> 82 bay area volunteers have been sent to help those affected by the storm. this red cross emergency vehicle is being shipped back east, these people are going to the hess coast and it will take them e them five dies and they're going to provide food, comfort, and clothes according to those who need it. >> we look for people who need our help, red cross help, and we go to find others so we make sure they get the help as well as we can provide a hot meal, stuff like that. reporter:

california, los angeles, san jose, and san francisco. they might say a lot of the cultural planning work started with that particular bill and implementation of survey efforts through the japantown community and the planning department. that, unfortunately, was not well funded. and although the identification process now i think is contributing tremendously to the japantown planning effort, i think the next step really emerged from western soma and the social heritage district concept. so, really, i don't know how much in the next iteration that we'll be receiving in terms of general plan changes and zoning changes and whatnot, address the kind of cultural heritage desires that the filipino and the lgbtq communities are expecting. but in japantown i think we've moved a little bit ahead of the game, you might say, where there are ongoing discussions now how to implement this concept. and there was a meeting several weeks ago that was called by diane matsuda who is on the historic preservation commission together with alan martinez who is on the hpc in the japantown area. and there wa

consultants in walnut creek or in san jose which is being done now? i'm not one of the quarter million dollars candidates but i've raised several thousand dollars, buttons, website, campaign essentials all produced here in san francisco. homelessness and panhandling, when friends visit from out of town they are aghast at the number of people on the streets. some are truly destitute. on the other end of the spectrum, some have homes. compassion, resources and outreach are crucial, but we also need city government to know that we won't tolerate people fighting, stealing, making messes or harassing residents, shoppers and visitors. i applaud the mayor for recently working with police, dph and the courts to institute mandatory treatment for the most chronic and costly individuals. but we also need law enforcement to tell people that they can't rome around town or come in from outside the city to block sidewalks and beg for change. this is a tough topic to tackle without sounding like some uncompassionate right wing jerk, but the situation is getting worse and we need to do what is best for everyon
